    Mark Amtower is a renowned person in the Federal community. His books gets into the weeds with the tricks and trades of selling to the Federal Government. You can use this to create your business plan for next year.

    Good book for smaller businesses looking to sell to government. Found it less useful as an introduction to understanding how the bigger contractors compete.

    I believe this book is intended for someone who has simply thought about starting up a contracting firm or company but never sought out more information previous to reading this. Throughout the book you will notice the simplistic style and the author's attempts to break it down for the lowest common denominator on how to break into government contracting. People who have no experience in contracting will find this a helpful tool as a first place to start.

Throughout the book you will notice the simplistic style and the author's attempts to break it down for the lowest common denominator on how to break into government contracting. People who have no experience in contracting will find this a helpful tool as a first place to start. There are numerous references to help readers and point them in the right direction on where to start looking for information. Having said that, the book is not very specific and calls for the reader to do a lot of information searching and general research on their own. There's quite a bit of name-dropping in certain chapters and I felt it was more the author's prerogative to give shout outs for no reason rather than to inform. Much of the information in the book is available on the internet, in fact the book tells you to refer to web links quite a few times which might be good for a "For Dummies" book but I was expecting a little more.
